July 5, 2002 – "From the Water's Edge" is the title of the art exhibition that will open Friday at Alexander's Cafe. It's a showing of new work by St. Thomas fine art photograper Gary Felton.
The public is invited to the opening champagne reception from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Frenchtown restaurant. Felton will be on hand to discuss his work, and the door prize winner will receive a reproduction of his image titled "The Calm."
This collection of custom Giclee prints highlights a world that many people seldom get to see.
Felton's show represents the latest in museum-quality digital reproduction technology — Giclee printing. The computerized technique offers some of the finest richness of color and fidelity of imagery available in printing today. Felton has personally printed all of the works to be exhibited, on canvas and watercolor paper that ensure the archival quality of the images.
Felton grew up in Southern California but for the last 12 years has called St. Thomas home. An avid sailor and scuba diver, he has photographed a varied picture of the world in architectural, travel, sailing and underwater imagery.
Camera art has been his calling from his formative years. He is a graduate of the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, Calif., where he won numerous awards and was represented in national student exhibitions. After working in advertising and architectural photography for 13 years on the West Coast, he set off to sail the world, his camera always with him.
Felton's photography has won numerous awards and has appeared in such magazines as Cruising World, Yachting, Sailing, aloha, U.S. News & World Report, and Sport Diver; on Cruising World's calendars; and in the book "Wooden Boats, From Skulls to Yachts."
"From the Water's Edge" will hang through Aug. 8. All works are available for purchase on opening night and for the duration of the show.
For dinner at Alexander's following the reception, reservations are requiested. Call 774-4349.
